You Must Deliberately Cut Off Those Things That Seem To Hold You Back

It’s All About Jesus!

Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Sept. 13, 2010:

This is another season of new beginnings, and in order to enter in you must leave the past completely behind. However, for many of you it seems like the past won’t let go of you! This is a spiritual condition in which you must deliberately cut off those things that seem to hold you back by removing yourself emotionally and mentally from the ties that bind. Freedom awaits; go forth with new hope and joy, says the Lord.

Galatians 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.

One may have awakened to the sound of the 3:00 AM Alarm.  One may have tried to doze off again before the next scheduled alarm may have been set to go off at 3:20 AM.

After the subsequent alarm may have gone off, one may have logged onto one’s computer and read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have been encouraged.  Thank You Jesus!

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 3:30 AM.  One may have praised the Lord with song, confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today.  One may have been led to Jonah 1.  Thank You Jesus!

A smile may have come over one’s face.  One may have been very pleased with the Lord’s choice.  One may have read the entire book of Jonah before leaving one’s prayer closet.

One may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  Lord, thank You for answering each prayer request according to Your perfect will, in Jesus’ name.  Amen.
